Friday 15th March kicked off the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce annual Business Golf League, held at Sleaford Golf Club, in conjunction with Bluecube.

The day started with a motivational speech by NLP Trainer, Nicola Ellwood of Ellwood Performance and Mastery.

Nicola specialises in mindset and coaching and advised the golfers to visualise their shots - it seemed a lot of our players took this to heart, as there were plenty of great efforts!

After a rainy start, the weather cleared up – but with plenty of wind still to make the playing conditions more challenging.

Ian Jones from the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce, Chris Hubbard and Andrew Manderfield from Streets Chartered Accountants teed off first, with the other teams following in a staggered start.

Players returned from the greens, taking shelter from the relentless winds and enjoyed some networking over a two-course lunch.  

The day finished off with the announcement of the day’s winners:
